High Desert Job Fair

The San Bernardino County Workforce Development Board will host a support event in the High Desert for individuals whose jobs were recently eliminated at United Furniture Industries (UFI) in Victorville.

The Rapid Response event will take place from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 8, at the High Desert Training Center, 13313 Sabre Blvd., Suite 2, in Victorville, followed by a job fair, open to the public, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“We hope this event will help not only those impacted by recent events, but anyone who is looking for new career opportunities,” said First District San Bernardino County Supervisor Col. Paul Cook (Ret.).

Resources for former UFI workers will include individualized job search and resume assistance, and information on veterans services, skills certifications and on-the-job training, and financial assistance for training.

WDB also will provide information on insurance benefits, the county’s three America’s Job Centers of California, COBRA, 401(k) options, the Affordable Care Act and child support assistance.

The job and resource fair is a Title-1 financially assisted program and an equal opportunity employer program. Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities. For federal funding disclosure information, visit wp.sbcounty.gov/workforce/about/ffd/.
